Your friend didn't use the "safely remove hardware" function when he was finished. Now, the camera wants you to format the card in the camera. This will erase the card so download any pics first using a separate card reader.

When I try to turn on my FinePix A600 is beeps, the lens comes out, the light on the back flashes yellow, then it flashes red, the lens goes back in and the camera turns off. I bought a second FinePix...


I'm curious....the camera came out in 2006....how did you buy a second one?...and more importantly, why? If something doesn't work, the first thing people do isn't to go out and buy another one. Anyway, from your description, the problem seems to lie with the cards, not the camera. All memory cards must be formatted (sometimes called "initialized") in the camera before use and regularly after downloading the pics to the computer. This erases the card and brings it back to original condition so download any pics you want to save using a separate cardreader if necessary and then, format/initialize them in the camera.Also, how old are these cards?....they don't last forever.

My sd card wont read. it says that its not initialized. i flipped the thing in the sd card but nothing changed. how do i get my card to work. it worked fine until i put the sd card in the printer over...


Had you ever initialized (formatted) the card, especially when you first got it? If not, an unformatted card will work fine initially, but almost always corrupts with time after many pictures are added. To prevent this issue permanently, you should always format a new card. But note formatting will erase the card! If you haven't saved your pictures yet, and you're having trouble locating them on the card with your computer, see this article. After you've recovered and saved your photos, format the card IN THE CAMERA using the camera format feature (look for it in its menus). This will rejuvenate the card, and prevent this from happening again.

My camera comfortably copies' internal memory' pictures to the compuer, but can not copy any files on the 'memory stick duo' to the same destination.I only keep on receiving a small pop-up with a message...


Most people find that if they use the internal memory of their camera, they have problems with the memory card. The solution is to erase the internal memory and vow never to use it again. Here's what you need to do now. 1. Download any pics from the internal memory you want to save. Then, with no card in the camera, go into the menu and find "format"(may be called "initialize") and follow the on-screen instructions to erase the internal memory. 2.Download any pics from the memory card. Use a separate card reader if necessary. (You'll find that using a card reader is the best way to download). 3. With the card in the camera and your pics safely downloaded to your computer, do the "format"/"initialize" thing again, this time to the card. Now, everything should work perfectly. typrice_28.jpg

Card not initialized


This usually means the card needs to be formatted in the camera but, this will erase all your vacation pictures. First, try downloading your pictures to your computer using a separate card reader. If that doesn't work, take the card to a store like Walmart that has a Kodak picture maker machine. You can print your pictures or make a cd from them. Then you can safely format the card in the camera.
